I can't make it to any conferences or shows this year. So here's a whole podcast episode on conferences I think are worth attending and the things you can (and should) do while you're at them!

A little late this week, but hopefully you can forgive me. Proprietary software vendors have a habit of locking us into their tools by using (or creating) closed file formats that only their applications can open (and without a viable interchange format). This is a pain point not just for open source creatives, but for anyone who doesn't want to be tied to just one tool.

So what do we do about it? Is there anything we can do?

New Open Source Creative Podcast episode! In this one, I detail my hunt for finding a replacement for Freemind. That little program has served me well as a mind mapper over the years, but I need more... or better... preferably both. And I think I found it.

Looking to build a website? Static site generators are a great option. But which one do you use? The two leading ones are Hugo and Jekyll. I wrote a little article that hopefully will help you decide what's best for you.

Just in time for your Thursday night (or Friday morning, depending on where you live), I've got another show for you! This week it's a workflow show. I'm talking all about writing process with free and open source tools. This is my workflow. What's yours?

I got to record this week's Top 5 video for Opensource.com. go watch me be awkward on camera and talk about the programming-related articles that came out this week!

So I co-wrote a little article with Ben Cotton on ways to deal with haters in open source communities... but it also applies to sharing in all kinds of creative groups.

How do you deal with haters when you share your work?

The rantings, they are here this week with a vengeance. Some people apparently still think that there's this singular monolithic computer graphics industry where everyone does things the same way. Those people are wrong. And thinking that way is ignorant.
